The London 2012 Olympic committee has unveiled the mascots that they will be using for the games, take a look at this...

Please Click Here

The masocts have a prominant eye, which I think is symbolising the all seeing eye and also note the use of pyramids in this design. The one on the left has a small pyramid on it's head, which I am assuming is the male phallic symobolism and the one on the right i think is representing a female character and it has a pyrimidal type design in which I interpret as the female womb/ovarial symbolism.

Also when asked


to describe exactly what his creations were, designer Grant Hunter of London-based firm Iris said they were "magical beings" that would become "multi-dimensional" mascots aimed at capturing the imagination of children across the world.


also quoting from the source it says,


Wenlock and Mandeville both have one large eye, representing a camera lens so they can record what they see, cannot speak, do not smile and have features borrowed from London's iconic taxis.


Hmmmmm an interesting thing to say don't you think?

Your thoughts on this?

Weird..not quite sure what to make of that.
Why do the games need a mascot anyways?
Honestly IMHO, I don't understand the premise behind the games at all.
All these athletes put everything else in life on hold just for this one event..and the failure can be devastating.
What does an olympic athlete do after failing?
I don't get it.
Some things in this life are truly a waste to me.

You Serious?

That was made public a while ago, but maybe if you can show us the next mascots for the following olympics that would be ok

I've just had another look at the picture on the link.

Are they doing Nazi salutes? It looks like they are!

I missed that the first time I looked at it.
